So why would you ever think about calling Stephen Ministry? Well, for some, the smile is pasted on. A good life is an illusion, and they cannot tell the difference between what they should be feeling and what they are. You might know people like this at work, school, or in your family. If you do, please encourage them to call and talk to one of the friars or the Stephen Ministry office to have a loving lay minister walk with them through their trying times.
